This Ocean City Cool Capture Challenge Week 21 History is all about us finding cool photos of something that you find that’s #History …

So, why did we choose #History as this week’s Topic, because this weekend is Endless Summer Cruisin’ here in Ocean City MD and we have a lot of history coming to town, at least if Hurricane Matthew [Tracking Map] continues on it’s projected course to head out to sea…

Plus, we just have a lot of cool stuff we’ve seen and done here over the years, so check out your archives, share some of you OC history, or some history from where you live!

The January photo in the Ocean City MD 2017 Calendar you see below is from January’s 2016 Hurricane Jonas that trashed the OC Fishing Pier…  We love #history!

Again, it’s all about imagination & being creative…  This Photo Contest is open to all, and is up to you if you’d like to be creative with it…  Share your Painting, Photoshop it, have fun with it…

This week’s Cool Capture Challenge Week 21 History 2nd Place Sponsor is… aka Robert J Banach (hey, that’s me!)

Ocean City Maryland 2017 Calendar - January | Cool Capture Challenge Week 21 History aka Robert J Banach Photography is located at 408 Philadelphia Ave, Unit 901, Ocean City MD 410.921.0176

I have put together a pretty cool, if I do say so myself, Ocean City MD 2017 Calendar.  Included in the Calendar are the dates for all the major events happening throughout 2017 that I could get verified.  And, yes, getting events verified in Ocean City MD is a challenge as for some reason, it baffles me that we do not have a plan to keep events consistent.  So, I will do the best I can and for updates simply sign up for my weekly newsletter…  Click Here!

Now, the best part of this year’s Ocean City MD 2017 Calendar is the COUPONS on each page, your passport to more saving in Ocean City MD!
